The House still isn’t moving to impeach the president, but House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said *if* his committee *were* to proceed in that direction, articles of impeachment could pass his committee in the late fall. Nadler cited key court decisions about the committee’s efforts to obtain evidence and witnesses coming in October or November. But: is there a need for more fact-finding?

Ken and Josh take some questions from listeners on impeachment and the new California state law requiring candidates to release their tax returns to get on the ballot.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s in a tough spot with Roger Stone. The judge ordered Stone off all social media a few weeks ago, and now he’s suing, saying it’s a violation of his First Amendment rights. Does he have a good argument? On the other side, the lawyers for the government have asked Judge Jackson if they can show a clip of The Godfather Part II to make a point to the jury.

Plus: Judge Emmett Sullivan and the emoluments case, and is Michael Avenatti a good presidential candidate?
